FamilySearch.org is the largest free genealogical website in the world. It contains the records of over four billion people worldwide and is sponsored by the Church of the Latter Day Saints (the Mormon Church).
Todd Knowles will demonstrate how we can make the most of this vast resource as we search for our Jewish ancestors. In addition to the basic searches, we will learn some tricks to finding our family records in the fast growing collection of online digital records. He will also show how to access the Knowles Collection of Jewish records that includes over 1.4 million people.
Todd Knowles is a professional genealogist on the staff of the Family History Library in Salt Lake City, Utah. After being introduced to family history at the age of 12, he soon discovered his Jewish roots. His journey to learn more about his Polish-Jewish great, great, grandfather led to the creation of the Knowles Collection (knowlescollection.blogspot.com). Knowles has spoken throughout the world and his articles have been widely published. He currently serves as President of the Jewish Genealogical Society of Utah.
